Obnoxious knocking

Hi guys, I think I've seen a few threads on this but I couldn't really find a solution, or even a proper diagnosis. So when I turn my car on, there is a substantial amount of knocking in the dash and it sounds like it's coming from right above the stereo head unit. It knocks on and off for about a minute or so and it sometimes occurs while I'm driving.

I'm not sure of what this could be but I'm sure some of you have experienced a similar problem

I have the same problem, sounds like a woodpecker caught in the dash?
I've been told that's it's one of the a/c vent actuators getting stuck. Haven't fixed it and don't really know how to, or how expensive it would be

That's exactly what it is. A/C actuator. Had it myself, seen a lot of members report it as well. Easy fix @ dealership/shop.

Yeah it's a easy fix. Like 20 bucks off latemodelrestoration.
